Teachers to withdraw extracurricular services

Teachers have voted to end volunteering to lead extracurricular activites in several school districts in B.C. (CBC)
Teachers in several school districts, including the Central Okanagan and Kamloops Thompson, have voted to withdraw all extracurricular services.

That means no lunchtime tutorials, no overnight field trips, no school plays.

To understand more, Daybreak spoke with Jason Karpuk, the president of the Kamloops Thomson Teachers Association -- a local branch of the provincial teachers' union.

We also heard from Larry Paul, the secretary treasurer for the Central Okanagan School District and Sue Reedman, one of the organizers of the Kamloops Festival of the Performing Arts, who says they'll have to make changes to their festival schedule, since teaachers will only particpate during school hours.
